coming Open Knowledge Festival in Helsinki. Sorry for repetion, if this
information has beed circulated here already.

will be extensive programme about Data Journalism and Data Visualization

Farida Vis among others are having presentations. Hans Rosling is havig
his keynote on Thursday and on Friday there will be Datajournalism
Hackathon organized in collaboration with the biggest Finnish News

The tickets to the OKfestival will be sold out, but they are not yet
